In a surprising move, Elon Musk, the tech mogul and visionary behind companies like Tesla and SpaceX, has set his sights on transforming the widely popular social media platform Twitter into an entirely new entity: 𝗫 – 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗘𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘆𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗔𝗽𝗽.
This ambitious rebranding initiative promises to revolutionize the way we interact and engage on social media.
Here are ten groundbreaking features that will soon be part of the X app:
- New Domain Name: Say goodbye to twitter.com. The new domain for the platform will be http://x.com, signaling a fresh start and a departure from the old identity.
- Logo Overhaul: Elon Musk is known for his flair for the dramatic, and he has confirmed that the old Twitter logo will be ceremoniously “blowtorched” to mark the beginning of the X era.
- “Viewers” instead of “Followers”: Musk hints at replacing the term “Followers” with “Viewers,” suggesting a shift in perspective on how we interact with content creators and influencers.
- Creator Payments: X app aims to support content creators by introducing payout options for profile visits. The criteria for earnings will no longer be tied to reaching 5 million impressions per month, and even creators without a subscription button can participate in this program.
- Global Ad Sharing: Ad sharing will now be available in over 100 countries, allowing businesses of all sizes to reach a broader audience and connect with potential customers worldwide.
- Enhanced Bookmark System: Responding to user feedback, X app will revamp its bookmark system, enabling users to save tweets from their timeline and utilize a search functionality to find bookmarks easily. Additionally, weekly emails will be sent out to users, reminding them of their saved bookmarks.
- Transparency on Shadowbans: X app will now openly display instances of shadowbanning on user accounts, including the reason for the ban and potential solutions to regain access to full Twitter functionality.
- Streamlined Scam Reporting: Reporting scams on the platform will be made easier with an improved and efficient reporting system.
- Financial System Integration: Musk envisions X app becoming more than just a social media platform. It will integrate features similar to China’s WeChat, aiming to be a significant player in the global financial system with a focus on fraud prevention and real-time monitoring.
- Diverse Features: X app will expand its services beyond traditional social media, with new features like a dating platform, an ecommerce platform, integration with food ordering apps, a stronger emphasis on audio and video content, and a UPI-like payment and banking system.
Elon Musk’s vision for the X app represents a daring endeavor to reshape social media and bring together a diverse range of services under one umbrella.
While the proposed changes have generated excitement and anticipation, some users are cautious about the potential challenges and implications of such an ambitious transformation.
Only time will tell how successful these features will be, but one thing is certain: Elon Musk’s X app is set to disrupt the digital landscape once again.
